Excited, but not TOO excited.

It is 9:53 and I have accomplished a heck of a lot more then I do on any old regular day.
Kids up, dressed. Check.
OH, and fed. Check.
Neighbor Child, who's father pays me whenever the hell he feels like it, arrives. Check.
Laundry started. Check.
Knocked out celebrating all the Holidays that fall on today, as per Michael C. Check.
Fertilized the lawn. Check.
Check out Meleah's AWESOME NEW MUG. Check

WOW!! I am feeling very productive today.

Now on the exciting, but don't-get-my-hopes-up-to-high-news.
We're Pregnant!! Just kidding! WOW THAT WAS SCARY TO WRITE!
Seriously though, Hopefully this adorable little face may be joining our family very soon.

She is an 11 month old Puggle and We have applied to adopt her from a shelter. I'm hoping that because we seen to have all good things that a dog needs, (i.e. fenced yard, I'm home all the time, so she'd rarely be alone) we are chosen. What nice about a Puggle is that they don't have the breathing problems that regular Pugs do. And we really don't want a big dog. Keep your fingers crossed. We haven't mentioned it to the kids, because I know I'll be crushed if we don't get her, and they'd be even more so. If not her, I know another one will come along. I had a Husky growing up and all he was good for was tipping you out of the sledding the snow and taking off, and eating my very expensive point ballet slippers. And tubes of lotion, giving him a lovely floral scented breathe. I want a dog the kids can play with, yet small enough for me to knit little sweaters for. Tee Hee!!
Damn, I'm getting way to excited about this. I'm going to scrub the kitchen floor, that'll ruin my day.

Just make sure the sweaters fit over her head. LMAO!!!!

Well now, don't you just suck. Remind me NEVER to make you anything again, sister dear.Nope, no more ugly animals for you. I made one error and the boy freaks out whenever the sweater shows up. I will make her little cardigans, so that they will be sure to fit, SMARTASS!

I have SO much stuff to ruin your day! Come over sometime, would ya?

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! And, by the had me going with the whole "I'm pregnant" thing!

Momo: Usually I'm a slug in the morning. NOT a morning person. And as of this moment, I am beyond grumpy. We'll have to share our-ruin-our-day-misery, when I make a trip to OH. I have been carless for 2 months, and really look forward to my husband coming home, after being gone for 12 hours. he calls on the way home tonight and says..I'm gonna stop and get a beer with Art. HMM! Thanks buddy! And I have no wine!! Sorry about the whole pregant your attention though! How are the banana peel drum sticks working out?

Michael C said...

Yay for the possible new (K9) addition. You were able to celebrate more than I did today, except for the stress part. I got lots of that in ;-)

OMG! That dog is CRAZY adorable.

chefmom said...

Michael: I'm sorry to to hear you didn't get to celebrate all the other Holidays!

Meleah: I was very productive. It felt good to get so much done, it continued on all day. We're going to see the dog today, so keep your fingers crossed!!

Wow, are you lucky. I want a dog. I would like a welsh corgy. My sister has 3 dogs, 2 cats, 2 horses, a husband and an X husband living here. Oh yeah, and me. It's a happy home.
